What is a junk journal? According to google, "a Junk Journal is a handmade book of recycled and found materials and ephemera. The pages can be used to write, draw, paint or record memories, thoughts, ideas, and inspiration. The finished junk journal can become anything you want."
Since I'm using up these gorgeous Graphic 45 Cottage Life papers, I'm calling this a "junque" journal. Everything sounds fancier in French! Below you'll find photos of the last couple of pages.
I decided to keep a space for photos.
When I design a page, I like to repeat
a little something I did on the page prior
the fussy cut roses.
If I'm using a belly band on a page,
I don't want my tickets, cards, tags to fall through the bottom,
so I make a "ledge"
by cutting a strip and raising the bottom of the strip
It's a "catch-all".
On to the next page.
Tags, note cards, etc through a belly band again.
The blue tag is cut in 1/3 and decorated with Dare To Dream
then glued to the belly band.
Hanging tickets are skinny and fun to do!
I decided to cut off the side of the last page
so that it also would measure 8" wide.
Then added papers to the 3 pockets
and a bit of vintage lace.
Not sure what I'm going to use this for yet,
but ready for the next trip,
outing with the girls,
or reminders that I need.
Thanks for visiting!
